I do not "also" holler at my neighbors who pull out a cell phone while paying for groceries with food stamps. (I'm not sure what "also" refers to, I am respectful to all people."
You are correct that I don't know who needs a cell phone and I do not begrudge them checking on their kids to make sure they're okay.
I have no knowledge of the commission of welfare fraud. I think that if I did I would report it to the Department of Social Services.
I think that your allusion to my allegedly sticking my nose into other people's "private" lives is wrong on many levels. I will answer as to one aspect. I do not think that an individual's receipt of government funds should be viewed as totally a private matter. All of the taxpayers dipped into their wallets to fund those payments.
The cops (or DSS) can not investigate my claims if I don't have access to the government payment data in the first place.
I read about a person on a disability pension who was photographed by the local newspaper performing athletics inconsistent with a disability pension.
As an aside, in Norway all tax returns are public.
